Manuscript Back in My Hands

I am so excited…TO BE QUEEN is back in my hands…this should be the last pass (only minor changes) before we lock it. This spring, Eleanor will live once again in my book, as she lives in all the others coming out this year.

I just finished CAPTIVE QUEEN…I read it in one day…swallowed it whole, really. What an amazing woman! Though this is a very different Eleanor from the woman I have come to know in my own work, I am thrilled to have been in the company of Alison Weir’s vision. And Cecelia Holland’s book, THE SECRET ELEANOR will arrive on Monday! I am surrounded by Eleanor, which means I am in heaven.

Writing on the Road

I have been traveling from place to place, going to book signings, seeing friends, meeting readers and generally having a ball. But I have to ask myself in the midst of all this, What about my work?

My work, like all writers’, is going on all the time. Even when I am not at the computer, I have to keep a pen and my Eleanor notebook handy. Because whether walking by the Chattahoochee River in Atlanta or under the crepe myrtles with my goddaughters in Birmingham, the ideas still come. And when they show up, I have to be ready. Muse, please keep them coming…

Deadline Made!
